SCHOLARSHIPS: Amsterdam Merit Scholarships
The Universiteit van Amsterdam aims to attract the world’s brightest students to its international classrooms. As from September 2007, outstanding students from outside the European Economic Area can apply for an Amsterdam Merit Scholarship.
The tuition fees for non-EU/EEA students will rise considerably in the academic year 2007-2008. The Amsterdam Merit Scholarships (AMS) however are specifically designed by the Universiteit van Amsterdam to offer talented and hard-working non-EU/EEA students the possibility to pursue a degree in one of the academic fields covered by the UvA. The AMS programme is highly selective: only applicants with excellent study results and motivation may receive a scholarship.
